Pre Fourth of July Fun

The kids and I headed up to Hoodsport before everyone else and on the way we hit up the zoo. The kids had a blast. It's so nice to be a bit less reliant on nap schedule - we can push Liam a bit longer and some days can even go without a nap. It had been a long time since we had gone to the zoo and the kids were so happy to be there.
Love this girl so much!

They had a lot of fun doing this slide together


A snail and a sea anemone 

Instead of crawling through the tunnel....I find my kids snuggling together...




The best picture I could get of the 2 of them together

This girl has the most infectious laugh

The next day, we headed up to staircase to get in a hike. Wasn't sure how long Liam would make it but he refused to go in the back pack and walked the entire thing. Success!


The hike was beautiful. With the kids the age they are, I feel like we actually get to enjoy the views. 




They made it!



Towards the end, we had to have a bit of a dance party to motivate ourselves to keep going.

Halloween

I can' believe thanksgiving is right around the corner! This year has already started off quickly and continues to snowball even quicker. We had a blast over halloween, the kids enjoyed do don't pumpkins, challenging our carving skills, trick or treating with friends and callie even did her first haunted house (although I'm not sure she will do another one in a long time. Ha!).
We hit up the pumpkin patch on a beautiful (very cold) day. The kiddos played in corn, completed the maze, and tried to find the biggest pumpkins they could find.





 The kiddos pumpkins definitely show each of their personalities. Liam stuck with a truck this year and callie wanted a witch with her cat....she got a cat :)
 Liam dressed up as a dinosaur this year (thank you grandma for the amazing costume) and callie was a cheetah. We went trick or treating on Saturday with
some very good friends are Saturday (we weren't
sure how long they would make it on halloween) .

Husky Game

UW recently had a Girl Scout night at one of the Husky games. Preston was out hunting so I took the kiddos by myself (and met Sarah and Rey there). It went surprisingly well - especially since the game ended up being a 7:30 pm game. Luckily Liam napped the whole way there and was able to rally when it was game time. Callie's highlights of the game was being there with her cousins, the cheerleaders, and the marching band. She wasn't too interested in the football aspect. 
Although the stadium was not loud, Liam insisted on wearing headphones. He didn't take them off once and even fell asleep with them on in the car. 

Enthralled with the marching band
Hopefully some future Huskies!

Christmas tree hunting

Getting our Christmas tree is always a fun adventure. We headed up to the cabin for the weekend and explored the woods to find "the perfect Christmas tree". While we were there, we enjoyed every moment of being together and not having any work or obligations. We explored the woods, the beach and everything in between. 
Ok....seriously....just one cute family picture please! Can we all just smile at the same time once?!
I sure love my crew
We found the perfect tree and everyone had to take turns cutting it down with the saw.


We tried to get a cute Christmas card picture this weekend with very little luck. My kiddos wanted nothing to do with it and so we gave up :) These ended up being some of my favorites:
